Lovely Villa Gate

Private villas in Saudi Arabia are almost always completely surrounded by very tall solid walls around the entire property. There is usually at least one large gate big enough for a car to enter and another smaller gate for people to pass through. Gates are usually opaque for privacy, which is highly regarded in this desert kingdom.

  1. Hi Susie,
    Sorry for the off track post, i was just collecting some info about the Saudi Reaction to quran burning on 9/11 Anniversary at Ground Zero. Do you have any insight on the talk and mood in saudi arabia regarding this?
    Thank you,

    • Hi Syed – Sorry but I have been in the states all summer. I can only imagine that Saudis were upset at the prospect and it would have been seen as blasphemic to the religion. I’m just glad that it was called off.

    Many of the villa gates are beautifully designed, a pleasure to look upon. If I remember correctly, they all seem to be custom made, unique.
